Michael Jackson's fans are to be allowed into his burial site to pay tribute to him on the anniversary of his death.

Plans are expected to be finalised this week to allow admirers of the 'Thriller' star - who died of acute Propofol intoxication on June 25 2009 - into Forest Lawn Memorial Park, in Glendale, Los Angeles, following pleas from the late singer's family.

Glendale Police Sergeant Tom Lorenz said: "We understand that Forest Lawn is working with the Jackson family for some kind of commemoration. We will be working closely with Forest Lawn to ensure the safety of those who want to pay their respects to Michael Jackson while ensuring the safety of others who are coming to the cemetery to pay respects to their loved ones."

However, fans will not be given access to the Great Mausoleum, where the singer was interred last September and is also the final resting place of other showbiz legends including Clark Gable and Jean Harlow.

Sgt. Lorenz added: "Basically, they will be viewing it from a distance."

Michael's brother Randy revealed last month he was hoping fans would be allowed to pay their respects at the cemetery.

He tweeted: "I'm meeting with Forest Lawn and the City of Glendale. Although they have strict rules, I'll do my best 2 see if fans can visit and pay their respects beyond the gates of Forest Lawn, on the 25th. I will inform you all soon. (sic)"

The area where Michael is buried is normally off limits to non-family members and Randy's intentions have infuriated the families of other people laid to rest there.

Clark Gable III - the grandson of the legendary actor - said the mausoleum "wouldn't be as sacred" if just anyone could go inside.

I wish they could have made these plans last month or something, then I could have made arrangements to come down there. I'm going to try to make plans for the fall, probably in October. I think as long as they have everything organized & strict security everthing should be just fine. I love you more, Michael.

Michael should have been buried at Neverland. After Michael died Larry king did his LKL special at Neverland with Jermaine. JJ stated that he knows that this is where Michael would have wanted his final resting place to be. I also remember MJ saying during an interview that when he died he wanted to be buried around children. And that is the only way that he would feel safe. So I say Elvis fans have Graceland, let us Michael's fan have Neverland back the way it was from 1988 until Michael left in 2004. Let it be open all year around since the weather is great over there anyway.
